Default USC -7 vs Central Florida

Opened as a 7.5 point favorite but I guess a little early $ went UCF's way.

Scary line...

Doesn't that mean the "experts" believe we should win by 10+?

No. The line is never a score prediction. Oddsmakers set a line to get the $ on the side they want. It doesn't mean that they believe USC will win by 7 or by 10, which I assume you are adding home field advantage.

We should cover. Need to get better play defensively and on STs but we can beat these guys by double digits on the road.

Do people honestly think they will be able to slow our Offense down? We win this game by 3 touchdowns!

Thats not the issue. The issue is stopping theirs.

Blake Bortles (dual-threat) and Storm Johnson (215 lbs bowling ball w/ homerun speed) are going to be a handful. Their offensive line is littered with Seniors and are averaging a little over 300 lbs. Their top 4 receivers average over 15 ypr. They also have a Wildcat package with former QB, Jeff Godfrey that could present a big challenge.

This is a damn good offensive football team playing at their house.

I'd be shocked if USC covered.

I'm thinking somewhere in the 31-28 neighborhood. Don't know who will have the 31 though.

This game has the opportunity the be a GREAT early season Statement Game. If we go in and play has we are capable and win by 3 touchdowns it will raise eyebrows as we will be the upset special across the country.

I think we'll win by two touchdowns. Our defense bends but doesn't break this time.

Absolute worst game we've ever scheduled ever IMO. Idk if we escape with the W. if we do it will be ugly.

We'll be the upset pick of the week.

Eh I think that Navy game was worse. I think we beat UCF by 10-14 pts. Itll be ugly at first but we pull away. If we lose the season is a wash imo.

Default Re: USC -7 vs Central Florida

IF USC can't go into Central Florida and win by making a statement, then all the National Championship or SEC championship game talk needs to stop.

Good teams beat good teams on the road. That's what champions do, end of story.

I for one, feel USC will win in the neighborhood of 44-28. Yes, our defense has a LOT of concerns but if the Cocks can't lay a beatdown on UCF after a bye week?? Defensive house cleaning time!!!

***Note: I am perfectly aware of the season UCF is having and the fact they beat a very poor PSU team on the road. The Big 10 is so soft this year it's painful to watch***

The issue for ME is that I expected us to play better than we have in the first three games. You play like you practice and we can't get our guys on the practice field often enough to play cohesively as a unit on defense.

We will have a tough time winning Saturday. If I'm wrong I'll be happy and I'll come back on here and admit I'm wrong. So far...I'm batting 100% although I was admittedly all over the place with pre game thoughts prior to the Georgia game.

This game could be as hard for us as the arky game will be. I see a track meet type game and that will suck for us. I can see truly equal chances of us losing by 10 as I can see us winningly 10. Again, hope I'm wrong. Ucf is a good offensive team.

I see us winning as I'm looking through garnet glasses, but I doubt we cover.
